While Napalm Death’s delivery is harsh to unprepared ears, they aren’t just pissing in the wind. One only needs to look at the album’s title and cover artwork to get an idea as to the impetus of Napalm Death’s rage. Tracks such as “Smash a Single Digit”, “Stubborn Stains”, “Dear Slum Landlord”, and numerous others are essentially slave-labor protest by proxy; the moans and cries we would normally leave mercifully distant in foreign lands are suddenly growled and blared at us with commanding vitriol. While most songs here focus on labor exploitation and slavery, some also focus on GMO’s, near-death experiences, and anything else Napalm Death has a bone to pick with.

From a lyrical standpoint, this album is more than worth your attention, but the music present is also not to be missed. While N.D. in the last few years have pumped the brakes on their signature breakneck speed, they’ve advanced highly in their overall songwriting and album structuring. One may even be a little surprised to hear the vocal and musical experimentation of songs such as “Apex Predator – Easy Meat”, “Hierarchies”, or the aforementioned “Dear Slum Landlord”. However, Napalm Death never fail to make sure that all the odds and ends meet together seamlessly in a total package that not only makes sense, but is highly effective. The only negative criticism I could really give this album is that it could use less songs. A few tracks just kind of breeze by without significance, but they’re never offensive to the album’s listenability as a whole (and most tracks on this album are pretty short anyways).

In conclusion, if you’re interested in slave labor, extreme music, or observing the impact of Consumerism/Western culture/yourself on the world, I highly recommend you place a hold on this monster of an album.
